Turn Bottles Into Spades
Turn off the TV and tune into your own imagination. Enjoy each moment, allowing your creativity to unfold in the kitchen, craft space or in nature.
Next time you're throwing out a plastic bottle, why not try cutting it into this very handy spade? This is a multi-purpose activity saving landfill and entertaining children at the same time.
I've used a two litre vinegar bottle below, however you could just as easily use any two litre milk bottle. Children will love digging in the sand pit, beach or garden with this wonderful recycled creation. The cutting of the bottle should definitely be performed with great caution by an adult - preferably over a cutting board.
